97 things you will hate about del.icio.us

Human nature is a very strange thing. Don’t ask me to explain, I’m not an expert in this field. But I keep on wondering how human beings think sometimes. The fact is here. Never try to fight against it, you won’t succeed anyway.

Huh… I actually wanted to tell you how I hate some N# lists on del.icio.us, digg, reddit and such social bookmarking sites. You know, this kind of lists where the author tells you about “45 ways to be more productive”, “67 javascript tricks that, you idiot, sure don’t yet know”…

Sure some are very useful, really. But come on… I’d say that 80% of them are simple gibberish and still they get very bookmarked, dugg and stumbled uppon, web20ed, RoRed, and ajaxified.

Some folks call this copywriting. Yes, catchy headlines always work! It’s somehow the wisdom of crowds. Don’t try to be smart, it’s not about intelligence, it’s about a really basic and almost “animal” thing inside us. And this is exactly what makes me hate this kind of tricky stuff. It hurts me. Period.

So I promised a list in this post title and here it is:
